Pumpkin Spice & Gridiron

Today is like Christmas.  Like the first day of school.  I have pure excitement for two things that make a season debut in my life on this day.

1.  The NFL Baby - First game tonight Saints vs Packers. Brees vs Rogers.  Soul vs. Title Town.  Going to be a fantastic game. And I can't wait to see how my fantasy teams will do on this first week. 

Tip for the night -->  Keep an eye on Mark Ingram as the Saints' spotlight rookie this year.  He was the 28th pick of the draft and is an absolute workhorse.

Fact for the night -->  The season kickoff game has been on the Thursday after Labor Day since 2002, and since 2004 the defending Super Bowl Champs (Packers this year) host the opening game.  Looks like a tradition worth keeping!

2.  Pumpkin Spice Latte - I just enjoyed my first pumpkin spice latte of the season.  This is my favorite sugar-infested-but-I-just-can't-resist coffee drink, and there are times I wish it was available all year long! 

So please help me Bring em Out T.I.  Bring out those QBs, Linebackers, and foamy lattes.  Because this is the best time of the year!!
